You Won't Know Until You Try...
For years now I've dreamed of being a stylist. Not like Rachel Zoe, who styles the elite of Hollywood (though I'll admit even that looks fun!), but for real people who are living life. Especially for women. I have such a desire for each woman to understand her beauty and to walk around confident in that beauty. I don't believe there is a body or a face that is less than stunning. I do believe, however, that there are a lot of women who don't know what their personal style is let alone how to dress with it, or know how to dress the body they've been given.
I really, really think that what you believe about yourself to be true directly affects your ability to live up to your full potential. And for whatever reason that it is, I believe the way you feel about your personal appearance strongly affects how you feel about yourself. If those two statements are true, then the way you feel about your personal appearance directly affects your ability to live up to your full potential. Sound shallow? I hope not. I think it's reality. If you walk around feeling like you look horrible, you walk with your head low believe that you aren't worthy of the attention of others. If you don't believe yourself to be worthy of the attention of others, how will you make ripples and affect this world?
Anyway, because of this passion in my heart, I have wanted to be a stylist. I want to help people shop. I want to teach them about what looks good on their bodies. (Who cares if you hate your thighs/waist/height/legs/etc- there are ways to make your best features stand out and your least favorite features blend in so that your attributes get the attention and you feel pretty.) And lately...over the past 4 years even...there have been enough things coming together that I feel like I'm really supposed to give this a shot. And so I bought the web domain of my blog.
And I'm trying my hand at fashion blogging along with all the normal stuff I did before to see if people want to hear what I have to say. And I created the vision, packages/prices, and set up examples. (Check out the new tabs on the top of my blog to read these!)
My goal is to keep it reasonable. I know $100 sounds like a lot for a style board plus 3 hours shopping when you have to have money to buy the new clothes, but it's a great gift for a husband to give a wife for Christmas, birthday, "push present," "Congratulations you're pregnant," etc. And if you don't know how to dress your body, $100 can equip you with the knowledge to change the way you feel about yourself, your look, and enable you to do it on your own after that. Maybe that makes it reasonable?
Anyway, I'm marketing it around here but made it available online, too. Because a Style Board can be emailed, even if I live too far away to personally shop with you. And because I'm hoping those who pick up my business card in Hawaii locations will come here to check it out. So here we go... I'm giving it a try. The worst that can happen is nothing at all. The best that can happen is that I get to live out a desire in my heart. :)
So check it out- look at my past work and all the other different tabs. And leave your feedback. I'd love to know what you think. xoxo
